Lovely setting and fantastic mussels

We visited here whilst passing through Oban. We enjoyed the boat ride over to Kerrera and with the discount from the restaurant it only cost us £2 each return. We had a lovely table looking out over the marina and the grill is basic but charming. The staff were lovely and very helpful and the... read more

Disappointed in quality and choice when visited in May 2014. Went elsewhere in Oban after that. In previous years it was outstandingly good for choice, freshness and quality. Apparently there had been a change of ownership.

On our second visit to Oban we took the ferry to Kerrera for lunch at the Waypoint, The location was great but basic, we both had soup which was really nice, then I had the scallops and black pudding which was nice but I thought a bit overpriced compared to my partners langoustines which were amazing.

We visited as a party of four on the 26th August. The weather was lovely as was the boat ride to the Isle of Kerrera. The food was delicious and the staff were very pleasant, making us and our dog (who was provided with a bowl of water - much appreciated on such a hot day :-) ) feel really... More

We came here twice, at the beginning and end of two weeks sailing in the Western Isles and it was the best place we found. It may not look much but the food was fresh and beautifully cooked. My langoustines were huge and dripping in garlic and Pernod butter. The hake in its sauce was absolutely perfect. Others rated the... More

The food was very good however it was let down by staff who were lets say less than professional. Swearing in front of your customers (the F Word) is unacceptable. Putting the food in front of you and dashing off is also unacceptable and not checking if everything is alright also represents a careless attitude.. I felt that we were... More

Nice spot but the food isn't great and with a tiny kitchen and a lot of covers it's shouldn't be a surprise. Service was actually bad. Waiter acted like he hated his job. Having said all that it's reasonably priced and the view does make up for a lot of it's short comings.
